Hey is it back to you and me? Ha! Just kidding. Another good boat work here with the signature Ron characteristics. I don't know about you but I have a full-time job and it's difficult to do the more involved work as I would like. I'm thinking of not changing my posts everyday and wait till I get something special off the board. I've been spending a lot of time doing quick paintings for the purpose of posting daily. It's nice to have something new every day.. but there is a price to pay and I think the better work suffers.

I'm a scatter painter I think, W.K. in that it takes me time to work out my big paintings. I can do the character studies of single cars or whatever, but I have done so many that its not that exciting anymore. I don't always work my way from small to big in a direct path, there are detours (fuckups?) along the way so it takes time. Each stage requires adjustments. On the other hand I don't like to endlessly fiddle with details either. Basically I just like to see what will happen with the paint.

The commenters will be back its just a lull- we have two of the best blogs to comment on in the whole blogosphere.

For my part, sorry about the lull, I got a little busy. Spring cleaning, you know.
That boat used to take kids to school? I would have killed for a school BOAT instead of a school BUS.
I like how the boat kind of looks like it sat at the bottom of a lake--but only for about a week or so, not long enough to become a breeding ground for algae.

Funny Grimm, I was just checking out Golden Brown and am now going back to visit Grave Reflections. Thanks Grimm.

I think you could use more ultramarine here! :)

this one is really nice...your cars have such a familiar, cozy feel to them, even though they are abandoned and rundown...I really like your pallete!

Thanks, Holly, F.U.B. has been a member of my palette forever but I always seem to run out. My favourite blues are cerulean, cobalt, winsor blue green shade, and manganese blue.
